Let's face it we all lose motivation to stay active once in a while. Part of the reason is that we are creatures of habit and tend to do the same things over and over. For example, when going to the gym, people tend to do the same machines or use the same peice of cardio equipment and naturally, they will get bored with that. A good thing to do, especially in the good weather, is to take your cardio outside. Go on a walk and breathe the fresh air or dust off that bike and take it for a ride.
I see a lot of people throughout my day. Some I see for weight loss and some I see for strength. No matter the client I see, most have had a mental barrier at some point. One the most important things I've learned as a trainer is letting go of clients for much more needed help. I don't mean "let go" in the sense that they aren't doing what I say so I'm going to fire them. I mean in the sense that I know I can no longer help them.
When I come into class and see people coming back and feeling and looking better. Even just the look on their face, you can see how much of a difference it makes to start exercising. That makes me want to jump for joy. I see it almost every day. http://data.baltimoresun.com/b/fitness-heroes-2015/profiles/unger.html
